Only Kendall Jenner Could Pull Off Wearing Sequin Underwear Over Sheer Tights
Kendall Jenner’s evolution from reality TV star on The Kardashians to one of the most sought-after models in the fashion industry is evident from her Harper’s Bazaar September 2023 cover. As part of the historic publication’s Icons portfolio that spotlights game-changers who are reshaping the culture (like Doja Cat and Teyana Taylor), Jenner proves she’s made a name for herself outside of the Kardashian noise. She’s FWRD’s creative director, 818 Tequila founder, Calvin Klein campaign star, and, as mom Kris states to Bazaar, “Her superpower is knowing when it’s too much or when it’s not enough.”
The 27-year-old embodies that notion with her cover look, styled by Beat Bolliger. It’s got all the standard components of a typical outfit – except pants. Casually nailing the Hollywood-famous no-pants trend, Jenner models her sequin gold Miu Miu briefs over sheer black tights, finished with a nude knit turtleneck and slingback kitten heels. Her accessories include a gold cuff necklace and a thick watch from Panthère de Cartier. She rocks natural makeup, and her hair is styled into her signature slicked-back bun. She also wears additional looks, from an all-burgundy parka, bodysuit, and leather skirt by Marc Jacobs to a denim-on-denim Dior ensemble that features an oversize jacket, pants, black butterfly belt, and silver Cartier jewelry.
During her interview, Jenner touches heavily on her self-growth journey, having been in therapy for almost two years. “I meet with my therapist once a week, so every week I’m learning something new. I’m constantly evolving and just excited to do that,” she tells the publication. And while she’s no longer hiding in the shadows of her older sisters Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé, the young star credits her family for her solid identity. “I feel like I am coming into my womanhood…and having so many strong women around me has helped shape my sense of worth.”
As someone known for pushing bold trends, this isn’t the first time Jenner has gone pants-less. For the 2023 Met Gala, she famously wore a high-cut sequin bodysuit with dramatic sleeves by Marc Jacobs. She’s also developed an affinity for naked dresses and thong-inspired pieces – especially thongkini swimsuits. Most recently, Jenner’s enjoyed a style streak with boyfriend Bad Bunny, as the duo coordinate their outfits on many occasions. They wore matching snakeskin boots at a Lakers game and all-black leather outfits for a date night in May.
